We could also have texlive-binextra (which bibtex8 is part of) ship a


with the contents

% BibTeX8 sorting order files and BibTeX style files.
BSTINPUTS.bibtex8 = .;$TEXMF/bibtex/{bst,csf}//

That way it won't interfere with teTeX (not even with TeX Live's own
bibtex). That's what I'm doing on my system currently.
